this project is to provide illegals with new homes at tax payer expense. the illegals will tell all their relatives back home to come north and get a brand new free house. then they can all be together and laugh about what stupid, suckers the americans are.

Beginning this month, and especially during May and June, a large percentage of existing ARM's are scheduled to flip to their higher rates. Think things are bad now? Not even close.

I don't even know why any moron would propose affordable housing, no less build it. By the end of the year, there will be more affordable housing than Long Island knows what to do with.

Well, this is what happens when you stop your fellow citizens from getting them. People can get all kinds of tax breaks, but get affordable housing and people go sour on you, with an attitude.

I wrote to the Housing Parntership, they never even had the decency to reply. Just silence.

That would be nice for a change, Roger.

What I find shocking by all of these comments is that it is assumed that only those who are illegal or on welfare are the people who will live there.

What about the young single professional in his/her 20's that is leaving their parents home for the first time because they would like to be independent of their family and not have to move out of state to achieve that?

What about the young family that wants to have their children grow up knowing who their grandparents are as opposed to some strangers who live so far away?

There is a community that desperately needs legal, affordable housing. They should not be hidden in the illegal basement apartments that are a way of life on this island. We as an island need to preserve our families and our workforce. If there is no housing, there will be a brain drain that will cripple this island.

The banks and construction industry must love this plan.

It will ruin neighborhoods and force people to flee from the diversity of crime, filth and poverty.

The migration of white people will create a demand for new home construction and home loans.

Listen Honey,
Theres a couple of things you don't understand yet.
First, Cheap, subsidized housing goes to people with the greatest need. Alcoholics, drug addicts, welfare people have more need that young white people with jobs.Otherwise they will be laying in the street with thier hand out. Yechhh. Who needs that, it would hurt property values.
Second, young white people with jobs are the economic slaves to those that are more established. People like landlords, real estate investors, real estate agents, rip off auto mechanics, ect. It is thier interest to drain you of all income so you never get ahead and remain thier slave.
Third, all of this inflates home values so you can never afford it unless you take out a loan you can never afford. After that happens everyone involved makes a bundle and moves to Florida, leaving you holding the bag.
Got it? Good! See you in Boca.
There are a few things YOU don't understand yet. The young professional crowd is VITAL to the long term economic health of LI. Without us, who will replace the retiring Boomers? The healthcare industry is already struggling to find enough RNs, begging the older ones not to retire.

Secondly, the falling real estate market isn't going to fall far enough on its own. You are not competing with the way things were, you are competing with the national average home price, and the downturn is national in scope. When a new college graduate can move down to North Carolina and buy a decent home for $100k instead of $300k up here, an employer would need to pay a LOT more to convince them to stay on LI.

Renting is not a long term solution - you pay somebody else's mortgage and don't get the tax writeoff. Besides that, rent is also crazy high around here, and most of what our generation can afford are illegal basement appartments or living with family.

Also, these units are normally deeded such that they will remain affordable permanently - their resale value is limited, and new buyers need to be vetted the same as the first buyers to demonstrate their income.

Furthermore, the new best practice is to mix in the Workforce Housing units with market rate homes, in a way that you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the two unless you knew what to look for. This prevents clumping them all together in a "project." It also puts them in a place where if something inappropriate is going on, like a flophouse for illegals, the neighbors are going to pick up on that and put the kibosh down.

Please, do a little research before you go and condemn these practices:

So you'd like to raise taxes so blacks and illegal aliens can move into pristine neighborhoods and ruin them?

How would YOU like to have some "Workforce Housing units" put in YOUR gaited community?

Oh by the way, I make no apology for being a racist.

I have a constitutional right of association and refuse to live with subsidized negros and aliens.

Afordable housing needs to be defined first by those in the market for it, not the builders and it is high time that the County Exec stopped spending taxpayer dollars on a hairbrained scheme that no one who lives in brookhaven even wants on a 'limited' scale enough is enough. If the County Exec wants to work for REMAX or Century 21 or LIBI thye will surely find him a job suited to his selling spin talents.
